Lane Kiffin has been turning over every stone as he attempts to build FAU into a Group of Five power.
This week’s National Signing Day brought the sons of NFL legends Terrell Owens and Warren Sapp into the fold in Boca Raton.
Last month, he made headlines for visiting one of his recruits at the maternity ward, just after he watched his baby being born.
That was a totally classy move by Kiffin, and a savvy one.
His latest scholarship offer also involved a baby, though it is probably not one that is going to result in a commitment. At least, not anytime soon.
Earlier in the week, a Charleston, SC resident tweeted a picture of his six-month old to Kiffin. He says that his son is already 22 pounds, and that he was the second-biggest baby in the hospital’s history.
Naturally, Lane Kiffin took the opportunity to jokingly “offer” the baby a scholarship.

As you probably realize, offers to the class of 2036 are not committable, and realistically, Kiffin is probably not going to be leading the Owls in 18 years.
Still, he knows how to have fun and promote his program on social media, and that’s one of the reasons that FAU took a shot on Kiffin a few years ago.
